Video Review: SwitchEasy's Cases for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Are Thin and Affordable

For our latest video review, we took a look at SwitchEasy's lineup of cases for the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. SwitchEasy has been making cases for Apple's line of iPads and iPhones for years and its latest set of cases offer the quality design and affordable pricing the company is known for.

SwitchEasy's $20 Nude collection is its thinnest and lightest set of cases, measuring in at 0.8mm thick. Though it's thin, it is made from a rigid polycarbonate material that has a textured exterior for better grip. It's not going to offer a lot of drop protection, but it'll protect an iPhone from bumps and scratches.

The Numbers series is SwitchEasy's most affordable iPhone case line, priced at just $15. These cases are made from a soft-touch TPU that's designed to protect the iPhone from drops up to 1.5 meters. The $20 N+ series is quite similar to the Numbers series, as it's also made from a soft, rubbery TPU but with a glossy back.

SwitchEasy's $20 Aero series was created to be thin and light while still offering a good amount of protection. It has a rubbery rim to keep the iPhone safe from drops, but it has the same thin back as the Nude collection. We found it to be an excellent compromise between bulk and protection, and it was one of the lightest cases we've tested.

The last collection we looked at, the $25 Play, is similar in design to the Aero but it comes with a wrist strap and a built-in kickstand for watching videos. All of SwitchEasy's cases mentioned in the video come with an included screen protector for full device protection.

All of SwitchEasy's cases can be purchased from the SwitchEasy website. Pricing ranges from $15 to $25, but can sometimes be even lower on Amazon.com.

Stop right there. I don't know if this is a sponsored article or not, but what in the name of Steve Jobs is the point of an iPhone case that doesn't do anything but look pretty? Do you really think the iPhone is so ugly without a case? You might as well just put stickers on it for all the good this wrapper is going to do you.


It may not offer drop protection, but it does offer protection from dings and scratches. I personally do not use a case for protection from drops because I have never dropped my iPhone, but I do use a thin one similar to this so it doesn't get scratched in my bag. I'm sure there are plenty of people in the same boat who want a little bit of protection from scratches but don't want the bulk of a full case.

Scratch protection and grip are not to be underestimated. Aluminum gets easily scratched/chipped. And grip, anodized aluminum can be slippery, having a TPU case would give it better grip.

I used to say the same thing. I have had an iPhone since launch day of the original iPhone (I was the first person in line). I have never broken an iPhone screen. Well... yesterday... dropped my iPhone 6 plus, shattered the glass. Moral of the story: never say never.

switcheasy made really great cases in the iPhone 3G/3GS days. I was a big fan of the combination of rubber on the inside and hard plastic on the outside with the capsule neo. Sadly all the make now are pretty generic but colorful cases..

The Amazon link has an affiliate tag in it ;). So yes they do.

I honestly don't care, they deserve it.
